A CONVERSATION WITH THE DEVIL

As I point out in a few other articles, Satan knows the Word
of God. In fact, the Devil knows the Bible better than you
or I; after all, he is a spiritual being; and he was there
when the Word was first spoken and written. After thousands
of years of practice, Satan has become a pro at twisting and
perverting God's Holy Word, in order to tempt people, and to
trip them up with his lies and his half-truths; just as he
did with Adam and Eve thousands of years ago in the Garden
of Eden when he inquired "Hath God said?"; and just as he
unsuccessfully tried to do with the Lord Himself. Did Satan
not use the Word when he tempted Jesus during the forty days
that Jesus fasted in the wilderness? Didn't Jesus in fact
call Satan the Father of Lies on one occasion? Consider this:
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your
father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and
abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a
liar, and the father of it."
John 8:44, KJV

"Satan's 'If'", please refer to my KJV Bible verse list
called "Satan's If
As I point out elsewhere, it isn't that the demons don't
know the truth; it isn't that they don't know who Jesus
is; it is simply that, in their pride and rebellion, they
have rejected His Authority, as well as the Authority of
His Father. They are engaged in all-out war against Them,
and lies and deception are the primary tools of their evil
As I also explain in some of my spiritual warfare articles,
not only does Satan know God's Word, but he will use that
very same Word to try to condemn us after we have listened
to his lies and half-truths and erred from the Way. In other
words, he will tempt us, and cause us to sin, and then he
will turn around and condemn us for our sins. But let us not
forget that we are not to be ignorant of his devices, as we
see by this verse that was written by the Apostle Paul:
"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not
ignorant of his devices."
2 Corinthians 2:11, KJV
Having shared the above with you, following is a fictitious
conversation between Satan -- the Father of Lies -- and a
condemned sinner who is about to be cast into the Lake of
Fire. I wrote this unusual piece a number of years ago for
a Java animation that I made called "The Final March
Greetings Fool . . .
How appropriate that after all of this time, you and I
should meet here like this; but then, in your heart, you
knew this would happen, didn't you? Of course you did!
Come on now, you fool; this isn't a time for wallowing in
self-pity; it's time to be honest with yourself; after all,
you don't have very much time left.
A whole life you were given to make the right choice. From
the time that you were young, in His Divine Mercy, God gave
you opportunity after opportunity to accept the message of
the Sacrifice of His Son; but fool that you were, you
rejected Him. Not only did you reject Him, but you scoffed
and laughed at those who, out of love, tried to help you to
see the Light. In your folly, you cursed and you spit at the
Name of Jesus Christ, and claimed that His Father did not
And why did you do these things, fool? Because you listened
to my lies, and to my evil deceptions which I planted in
your darkened mind, and whispered in your evil heart. I gave
you darkness, while feigning to be an angel of light. Even
the Apostle Paul was smarter than you. He wrote:
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an
angel of light."
2 Corinthians 11:14, KJV
And the Prophet Isaiah wrote:
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put
darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter
for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Isaiah 5:20, KJV
If you had played it smart, you would have listened to the
Christians when they tried to tell you that I am the father
of lies . . . but then, the true Son said that thousands of
years ago; don't you remember? He said:
". . . he [ meaning me, the Devil ], was a murderer from the
beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no
truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his
own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
John 8:44b, KJV
You see pal, Jesus knows my true nature. He knows that since
Cain and Abel, I have inspired all of the violence and
killing which has filled the world through lies, greed, lust
and jealousy. Jesus is fully aware of my power. He knows
that what I offer people in the world is absolutely nothing
compared to what awaits those who trust in Him. Again, Paul
said it well when he wrote:
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which
God hath prepared for them that love him."
1 Corinthians 2:9, KJV
But you see pal, Jesus knew; because He came from the
Father; just as He returned to the Father. That is why He
resisted my evil temptations in the wilderness those forty
days, remember? He could have had it all in this world, but
He resisted me; just like James warned you to do:
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and
he will flee from you."
James 4:7, KJV
But not you, pal. Because you rejected God's Word, you
didn't realize these things, did you? If you had read it, or
if you had listened to others, you would have known that
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the
world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is
not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the
flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is
not of the Father, but is of the world."
1 John 2:15,16, KJV
You see pal, for my appointed time, I was the god of your
world; and so I had the power to offer these temporal things
to you. You wanted money, so I gave it to you. You wanted
power, so I gave that to you as well. You wanted fame, so I
obliged. I gave you every single thing that your evil heart
desired; and in so doing, I also blinded you to the truth;
exactly as the Apostle Paul tried to warn you; that is, if
you would have taken the time to read his words:
"Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of
this world, according to the prince of the power of the air,
the spirit that now worketh in the children of
Ephesians 2:2, KJV
"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of
them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious
gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto
2 Corinthians 4:4, KJV
You see that, pal? You are a blind child of disobedience . .
. and you let me do it to you!
I really find it rather amusing, because, as you can now
see, I've been exposed for literally thousands of years; and
yet you foolish humans continue to deny my existence, and
fall for my wicked tricks.
Of course, if you deny God's existence, then it is only
logical that you have to deny my existence as well . . . and
you are a very logical person, aren't you? Don't you
remember how you proudly boasted that any reasonable person
knows that neither God nor I exist, and that we are just
silly Christian myths?
How well King David wrote of you when he said "The fool hath
said in his heart, there is no God . . ."
Psalm 14:1, KJV
Well, it's a little too late now, but I suppose your current
dilemma has come as quite a shock and a reality check for
you, hasn't it, pal?
I truly hope that you don't mind me referring to you as
'pal'; after all, we are very much alike you and I. You
followed me and my ways to Eternal Destruction, instead of
following the path of Christ, which is the way to Eternal
Life, so I find the term 'pal' rather fitting.
Well, you thought you knew better, didn't you? Now see where
it has gotten you? You see pal, I used the same tricks on
you that brought about my own downfall. That's right; I know
that you already know exactly what they are: PRIDE and
REBELLION! I wasn't happy with my position in the Celestial
Courts, so I tried to usurp the authority of the Most High .
. . It didn't work.
Well, I won't bore you with my personal story, as it is
already written in that Book that you refused to read. The
point is, you wanted to be your own boss, and the captain of
your own fate. You wanted to be your own little god, just
like me, didn't you, pal?
Well guess what? A few thousand years ago, I convinced Adam
and Eve of the very same thing. I lied to them and told them
that they would become as gods. They took the bait, just
like you and many others have done since then. They weren't
happy with what they had. They wanted more. Doesn't that
You humans are so pitiful. What you will do to gain a little
bit of personal power and wealth in your lives. You are such
foolish, temporal, short-sighted creatures. Very few of you
ever stop to consider your Eternal Fate; at least not until
it is too late; and then you whine like babies!
Hey; look; don't blame it on me. I didn't make you reject
Christ. You did that all by yourself. A lot of people blame
me for some things that are their own fault. All I do is see
inside your wicked, evil hearts, and then present the
opportunity for you to do what you really want to do . . .
rebel against the one true God!
You are the fools who make the wrong choice and decide to
listen to me. You are the ones who choose to follow my ways
instead of the ways of Christ, and refuse to submit to His
Divine Authority in your lives. You are the real rebels!
Isn't it time that you accepted the blame for your own sins
and acts of rebellion, instead of blaming me?
Well, now it is too late. The Books have been opened, and
you have been found wanting. Jesus fully warned you of the
shortness of life when He said in one of His parables:
"But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall
be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which
thou hast provided?"
Luke 12:20, KJV
And didn't James tell you:
"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what
is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a
little time, and then vanisheth away."
James 4:14, KJV
You had your chance; a full lifetime in fact; now it's time
for you to take
. . . THE FINAL MARCH
Come on . . . you and I have a date with the Second Death.
That's right pal; you and I are going to be totally snuffed
out of existence in the Lake of Fire; both soul and body
reduced to ashes for all of Eternity; just like Jesus
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to
kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy
both soul and body in hell."
Matthew 10:28, KJV
As we take our final march together to the pit, allow me to
share a few more things with you, in order to give you the
full picture; just in case you are still a little confused .
. . but then, I am the author of confusion, you know. Once
again, the Apostle Paul exposed me well when he wrote:
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in
all churches of the saints."
1 Corinthians 14:33, KJV
Now I guess you know who has taken peace from the Earth, and
from the lives of many of its citizens. Oh well, I did what
I was ordained to do. Anyway, why don't you ponder these
thoughts as we take our final stroll . . . Oh, are you
weeping now? Considering the bitter truth you are now
hearing regarding yourself, I suppose it is appropriate; and
He did say:
"Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot,
and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Matthew 22:13, KJV
"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:
and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they
shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory."
Matthew 24:30, KJV
Now isn't that strange! The Saviour is returning, and yet
everyone is sad and mourning! Now why is that, pal? I'll
tell you why. It is because those are the ones who rejected
Him all of their lives . . . and when He finally returns,
they are going to realize what a big mistake they made; just
like you, pal. After all, He also said:
"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words
in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of
his Father with the holy angels."
Mark 8:38, KJV
Why are you looking back at the Golden City? It's not for
you, and never will be. You had your chance, pal! Your time
has run out! As Paul wrote:
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this
Hebrews 9:27, KJV
"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of
fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet
are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and
Revelation 20:10, KJV
"And I saw a great White Throne, and Him that sat on it,
from whose face the Earth and the heaven fled away; and
there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small
and great, stand before God; and the Books were opened: and
another Book was opened, which is the Book of of Life; and
the dead were judged out of those things which were written
in the Books, according to their works. And the sea gave up
the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up
the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works. And death and hell were cast into
the Lake of Fire. This is the Second Death. And whosoever
was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the
Lake of Fire."
Revelation 20:11-15, KJV
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living
God . . . For our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 10:31, 12:29, KJV
"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not
ignorant of his devices."
2 Corinthians 2:11, KJV
